CREVASSE RESCUE COURSE
Learning crevasse rescue is the first step to becoming a competent member of a mountaineering team. Many alpine objectives in Washington and beyond require glacier travel. While we all hope never to have to pull a teammate out of a crevasse, preparation and practice is important.
All guides are AMGA Certified Alpine Guides.
This is a one day course.
This course will be held at either Snoqualmie Pass or Stevens Pass near Seattle depending on weather and conditions.
Private Course Availability: April and May.
Group Course Dates:
If you are looking for a date later in the Summer, check out our 3-5 day Glacier Mountaineering Course.
None, we recommend that you have some experience with snow travel and ice axe use but it is not required. We also recommend this course for people who have taken crevasse rescue in the past and are looking for a refresher. It's important to keep these skills current!
